Food: Fortune Telling and Superstitions

Whenever we had ate a turkey or chicken with a wishbone, we would let it (the wishbone) dry out for a few days... then, one person would grab one side and a second person would grab the other to snap it, whoever gets the largest piece, their wish would come true. I always thought that if they both had the SAME wish it must then come true. (so my wish was always that they got their wish);)

Eating while staff is cleaning tables with Windex and mopping the floors with bleach..

There's no quicker way to lose one's appetite than to see a dirty mop, a nasty table wiping rag or especially smell cleaning chemicals while you are seated to dine in any eating establishment. That is so disgusting to me that I would (and have in the past) asked that person to stop or I would just leave.

Getting odors out of tupperware/plastic containers?

I am going to share the secret with everyone to finally GETTING RID OF THE ODORS IN YOUR PLASTIC AS WELL AS FAVORITE TUPPERWARE CONTAINERS. -
First, wash the item well with soapy water & rinse (remember that cool water will 'close the pores' in the plastic). After washing it, dry the container an lid thoroughly, crumble up some newspaper, place it into the container, close it tight and stash it someplace for a couple of days. When you finally open the container to toss out the paper inside, you will find that the carbon in the newspaper has absorbed the stinky smell. I have been using this trick for years. Newspaper has a lot of home uses. I recently discovered that when I clean out my kitty's litterbox, I wrap the soiled litter in several sheets of newspaper before I toss it in the trash and this keeps the waste from stinking out my garbage pail. Try it. - I promise it works!
